huckabee's show, and they were talking about the different president -- how different president obama was from president george washington. listen to what they had to say. >> this is a very different president than our first one. george washington was so adamant that we would not have a king. and i thought, gosh, we've done pretty well until 2008 and now i think we may have ended up with one. >> first of all, washington's desire to be a good citizen, his desire to be a positive force, i think would he look at some of the current she begshenanigans, look at the grotesque sequester and think it was disgustful. it stood against everything he believed as a citizen. he believed in partisan advantage and not factional skirmishing. >> i mean, you know, in all due respect, newt, that is the biggest bunch of hog wash. first of all, what has this president done that has shown any partisan over the country? he is getting bashed by guys on the left. i disagree with him on drones and other things in afghanistan. you disagree with him. what are they talking about? and how has he operated like a kin
is the "washington post" editorialized he is to the left of president obama. he has been taken -- by the way, i believe mr. gibbs who i don't often agree with, said he was the most unprepared and unimpressive nominee that he had ever seen. certainly the most unimpressive that i've ever seen. it really is -- 99% of it is to do with the positions that senator hagel has taken, whether it be votes against sanctions against iran, whether it be his belief that the surge would be the worst thing since the vietnam war and the positions that he has taken on various issues is, frankly, been out of -- not only out of the mainstream but far to the left. >> you asked -- were asked about his qualifications which is now an issue. you said he is not qualified to be secretary of defense. you came a long way, senator mccain. in 2000, you were running for president in your stomping grounds of new hampshire. here is what you said. >> secretary of defense, there's a lot of people that could do that one of them, i think, is senator chuck hagel. >> what's changed? >> that was the time and chuck hagel's positions whic

reasonable in come parson. the difference is that obama wants to avoid them. this is in the washington examiner. a conservative paper. >> yeah, exactly right. i read the speaker's op erksz d in the journal. it was quite a disz aster for him. the sequester is something that has to be avoided at all costs. and both you and i agree on that. and then the second half says here are all the reasons why we'll refuse to compromise with the president on it. you can't say this is a disaster for the nation u being an elected public official who presumably comes to washington not to generate disasters and self-inflicted wounds, but to actually solve problems that americans know have to close the steel. and i think this is going to play very badly for republicans because, again, in the public consciousness, it's recognized that one side is willing to compromise and one side is stone walling. >> u no, on the other hand, rand paul insists that the cuts aren't deep enough. listen to rand paul. >> i voted against is sequester because i didn't think it was enough. it's a slow down in the rate of dwrout.

to hear it and embrace the leadership. >> the "washington post" ruth marcus calls this obama's marriage equality test in a new op-ed she penned saying a president who speaks so eloquently cannot allow his administration to remain silent before the court where words are translated into reality. so should minority rights be put up to statewide vote for majorities to vote on marriage equality? the president basically said in the interview with robin roberts, that's the way he supports this, that states can figure this out. >> what the president said correctly is that the states are wrestling with this and we're seeing progress in the states, whether it be new york or iowa or four states last november. at the same time, we all have a constitution that guarantees us all protections and responsibilities and rights under the law. if every time somebody wanted their freedom to be respected, freedom of speech, freedom to marry, they had to but it up to a vote, it wouldn't be a right, it would be a vote. that's not the way america is supposed to work. >> republicans have realized to win elections
